Roundup / Glyphosate Herbicides
Defendants: Monsanto Canada ULC,
Bayer Inc., and
Summary: The most widely used herbicidal chemical, glyphosate, developed by Monsanto and primarily sold as Roundup, has been claimed to be linked with cancer and other health issues with prolonged exposure.
Guardian Law Group LLP has filed a Class Action lawsuit against the manufacturers of popular weed killer Roundup.
The Class Action is based on Roundup’s primary active ingredient, glyphosate. Evidence suggests that extended exposure to glyphosate can cause cancer in humans, most prominently non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, along with other suggested health risks.
Since its inception in 1970 by Monsanto, glyphosate has become the most widely-sold herbicidal ingredient in Canada.
Over the past few years many public health authorities have deemed glyphosate to be a likely harmful chemical, including but not limited to:
- The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, which has called glyphosate “probably carcinogenic to humans”;
- The American Cancer Society has glyphosate on a list of “probable carcinogens”; and
- California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment has added glyphosate to its list of potentially cancerous chemicals, now requiring products containing the chemical to come with a warning label.
In the United States, over 18,000 plaintiffs are currently active in lawsuits against the makers of Roundup, with thousands more launching cases every year. The bulk of these plaintiffs are farmers and those living in rural environments, although there are also many from urban environments whom have been exposed to the chemical for long periods of time, such as groundskeepers, gardeners and landscapers. To date, billions of dollars have been awarded to plaintiffs by American juries.
Thousands upon thousands of Canadians have had extended exposed to glyphosate believing the chemical to be safe for humans. Monsanto first introduced the world to glyphosate 47 years ago and Roundup’s manufacturers continues to claim, to this day, that there is no link between their products and cancer, despite the ever-increasing amount of evidence.
Remember, this isn’t just about the money, it’s also about providing proper incentives to companies like Monsanto to ensure they prioritize the health of Canadians.
